Writing is a lonely venture where I hide away from the world to jot down things I’d like to share with like minded people. But in the process of getting to you, editors, readers, publishers, designers, and all the people behind the scene make it easier for us to connect.

Here’s thanking them for being incredible in their own ways. And to you for feeding this writer.

Me & Regina again. Can’t believe it was a year ago we both launched our books, and now we’re doing it one more time.

Venue: 216, Beach Street
Date: 29th, November 2015
Time: 6 – 6.45pm

9 Emperor Gods Celebration is an annual event in Taiping. For 10 days there’s a vegetarian (mock meat style) food fest, miku offerings of all sizes, joss sticks, incense, opera shows, fireworks, fire walking, and three very long traffic-jamming parades.

Unlike Love in Penang, I was all geared up to send an entry to the Hungry in Ipoh anthology. With a title like that I think most of us (writers) interpreted the theme to be around the likes of food or horror or both which is more up my alley. In any case, I started with a horror story called The Strange Solitude of Hungry Helen but it grew too large to be eligible for the word count. However, it was a nice fit for There be Monsters, my next collection which will be launched at the Georgetown Literary Fest.

Wanting to give it another try, I aimed for a foodie fiction (I love foodie fiction) the second time around. The story came to me easily since I already had in mind what I wanted to write. The only challenge was to make it funny and heartwarming. An Epi-curious Affair is layered with tantalizing condiments and ingredients to stimulate your appetite and leave you with a curious aftertaste to savor
